Cerebral Palsy: Waisman Center Activities

The Waisman Center is committed to providing high-quality services to children with cerebral palsy and their families. CP is the most common cause of severe motor disability in children. Up to one-half of children with CP may have a co-occurring intellectual disability. Research suggests that 60 percent of children with CP have communication problems, yet many do not receive appropriate interventions until they experience significant communication challenges.
